The program begins Tuesday, at 9:30 a.m., with an opening ceremony, on Tanipoca Island, a landmark honoring a century-old tree, estimated to be 600 years old.

Throughout the day, many of Inpa's research groups and partner institutions will be part of the anniversary program with their own exhibitions and workshops.

The topics that visitors will find are varied, such as forest engineering, an exhibition on the anatomy and identification of Amazonian wood, fauna with exhibits the worlds of insects, terrestrial invertebrates, and venomous animals, the world of “stingless” bees, and exhibits on Chilonians of the Amazon and Aquatic Mammals of the Amazon.

Public health will be present at the Malaria and Dengue exhibition, and sustainability will also be present at the two solar energy exhibitions: Ecolágua and Mawe Produtos da Amazônia, a technology-based company incubated at Inpa.
